On the right side of the central body of the house is an independent and recently refurbished apartment, with a large living room, corner kitchen, cathedral style ceiling, shower room, WC. A staircase leads to the bedroom on the 1st floor.
On the left of the central body, is an independent cottage of 112m², currently operating as a Gite business (holiday cottage). This is very private and accessible through a private garden with a small stone wall. Here you will discover a beautiful old stone fireplace, exposed beams and lots more character. On the ground floor is a lounge/dining room and a large bedroom with private shower room and separate WC. The dovecote now houses a small fully equipped kitchen, and outside you will discover two dining terraces (north and south) and a large private garden full of mature fruit trees.
Two further bedrooms upstairs, each with their own character & unique atmosphere. Each of them has an en-suite bathroom equipped with Italian showers, large hand basins and suspended WC. A fourth single bedroom or study is housed in the dovecote. A quality finish throughout.
The house is exceptionally luminous, and is a mix of old style retaining the character of yesteryear, but also mixed with modern, global influences.
The property is very comfortable thanks to the modern technologies used (high quality insulation, solar panels etc). The owner actually sells electricity back to the grid that is produced from these panels.
An independent barn with stone floor. This room incorporates a double bread oven in excellent condition, alongside is an excellent wine cellar. Another room accessible by a contemporary staircase, has been restored into a further bedroom, ideal for friends and family and currently operating as a Chambres D'Hôtes (B & B room).

All the roofs are in the local slate, giving a wonderful ambiance to the ensemble. Outside there is a large swimming pool, set within mature landscaped grounds of over 2 ha including an ornamental pond, a meadow and some woodland. There are unobstructed views to enjoy of the Quercy countryside.
Located in the Northern Lot, this wonderful property sits close to the Dordogne border, and is convenient for a good choice of airports, including Brive, Limoges and Toulouse. Shops & restaurants are found nearby in the charming medieval town of Martel. The property is currently running as a successful Gite and Chambres d'Hôtes business, and is situated close to many major tourist attractions including Rocamadour, the Gouffre de Padirac, the Dordogne River, Sarlat, Lascaux IV, Collonges la Rouge and Turenne.
